I had the honor of shooting Kendra and Craig’s big baby announcement this past fall, and I was so excitied to shoot her maternity photos as well. I can’t wait to meet that sweet baby boy!

We snuck out of town while our house is being renovated and got to squeeze in a short session with my sister and nephew Levi. He is so cute and is growing so fast!

Sweet little Dalton is my newest nephew. He was the most relaxed newborn I’ve ever seen, he preferred to just let his legs stretch straight out and chill, and I don’t recall hearing him cry at all! We did this entire session at his home in Georgia – another peaceful in-home session. 🙂

As a mama who has had a few rough c-sections myself, I knew exactly what Elissa wanted when she said she wasn’t ready for photos of herself yet and that she really just wanted to capture Jackson by himself and with his sister while he was still this small.

We did this session in their apartment while everyone stayed comfy and away from germs, it was so relaxing!!!

This session was also featured on Little Bellows here, which I am super pumped about!

When Lauren contacted me about doing an in-home lifestyle newborn session for baby Jack I was super excited. Usually I have to convince people to let me shoot in their homes! Well, let me tell you, it is no wonder because their home is STUNNING and magazine-worthy AND her husband James built it!

I also loved that when I pulled up everyone in the family was ready and willing to have their photos taken. I love when newborn sessions include everyone!!! I can’t wait for this cutie’s 6 month session 🙂

Today is World Prematurity Day and in honor of that, I want to share a bit about my friend Mellisa and her adorable baby boy. Jack was born at 32 weeks and was two months old in these photos!

Their family went through so much to get Jack here. Mellisa has always been so brave and open about her struggles with infertility and that is something I admire so much about her! From Mellisa:

“Both of our children were conceived thru in-vitro fertilization. Our seven year old is biologically ours, but Jack Henry is an adopted embryo. We found out with further testing (while trying to add to our family) that scientifically speaking, our oldest shouldn’t be here. My eggs were never viable, and science can’t explain her. Although adoption was always something we were interested in, the desire to be pregnant was still so strong for me. So, we spoke with our doctors, and decided to adopt an embryo. Jack Henry was created from two amazing strangers, who selflessly donated so that we could grow our family. Although Jack is adopted, I was able to have the amazing experience of growing him inside my womb. What an incredible blessing. I felt him move, I heard his heart beat, and watched him grow.”

My baby boy turned one! We celebrated with a quadruple birthday party a few weeks after his day since my husband and two other boys all have birthdays too in a 2 week span of time (we will see how long I can get away with that!).

So since we didn’t have much planned for his ACTUAL birthday, I decided to commemorate with a cake smash session – on film of course!

Happy birthday sweet boy!!!
